Yo, Stanley!
(went to hear a fun band last night-here's the promo...
Dave Sewelson and Dave Hofstra of Microscopic Septet are playing tonight at Issyra Gallery, a truly remarkable space on Observer Highway in ​Hoboken. (Also in the combo, Joe Ruddick,)
The gallery is a hidden gem - the place literally overflows with traditional African sculpture and visual art, plus contemporary African art and work by local artists, from floor to ceiling pipes. Our friend Gigi Keenan, a brilliant mosaic-collage artist, has several beautiful small and large mandalas on display, a kind of personal / feminist reappropriation - the collages are made up of tiny pieces of old Playboy photo spreads).

It was a free-jazz show (in all meanings) (so free, the drummer, who also owns the space, told me he doesn't actually know how to play drums). They sounded great, though.
Avatar    Tue. 6/20/17 4:14pm geezerette:

@docjazz, that sounds wonderful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:16pm David D:

Yes, that does sound great - send them all over here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:21pm doctorjazz:

It was fun; one of those shows that 6 people came to (and 3 of them were connected to the space or the musicians).
Dragging a bit today, though, getting harder to go out on school nights...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:27pm David D:

That does sound like fun - a private performance! School nights should be over for the summer soon, or won't that make things easier?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:28pm doctorjazz:

It still seems like "school nights", though I've been out of school for quite some time...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:30pm David D:

Ah, everything in Germany seems to revolve around the school calendar, for just about everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:34pm Stanley:

David, I was wondering whether Leipzig was previously in East Germany, given the style of architecture I see sometimes on the playlist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:37pm David D:

Yes, indeed, Stanley. Leipzig was and is very much in the East, lots of reminders everywhere, even 26 years on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:37pm doctorjazz:

There is a Klezmer band in the states called Kapelye (or at least there was--I have one of their albums, Kapelye's Chicken), is that the same band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:39pm doctorjazz:

There was lots in the news at the reunification of differences between the old East and West Germany, though recent articles seem to imply that that has evened out. Not so, huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:39pm David D:

No, this Kapelye is from Sweden - I guess it is kind of a generic term...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:39pm doctorjazz:

Ochichornya?
Avatar    Tue. 6/20/17 4:49pm geezerette:

"Light Flight" is one of my favorite songs! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:50pm David D:

That could be it, Doc - good catch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:50pm David D:

Geezerette: It is indeed lovely
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 4:52pm David D:

Yes, some aspects of life have evened out in some parts of the East, but not really everywhere. And I would say there is still a considerable cultural divide.

Hello David in the fun factory.

Talking of factories. Where is the Carl Zeiss factory?

DIGGGGG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:07pm Brian in UK:

It is in the low 30s here not as hot as 2015 when we went to Vienna and it was a straight 37C all week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:08pm David D:

Good evening to you, Brian! Funny you ask, since Carl Zeiss is originally and partly still in Jena, where Jenaer Glas is also from (see photo). I also happen to have gone to university there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:08pm Brian in UK:

Stanley, glad you were in the south of Portugal. those poor folks in the north got it bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:09pm Stanley:

Hi Brian. Where are you? It was 35 in Lisbon (gasp)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:10pm Brian in UK:

David, that kind of tripped my question.

Stanley, in Watford.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:11pm Stanley:

Tropical Watford.
Say no more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:11pm Brian in UK:

Good trip, Stanley?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:14pm David D:

Brian: Yes, Jena is one of the more prosperous places in today's East, lots of start-ups and innovation. Nice place to study as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:15pm Stanley:

Bloody good, Brian. Highlights included the Tile Museum, pastel de nata (custard pies), multi-cultural back street neighbourhoods and a local fiesta. We both want to go back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/20/17 5:16pm Brian in UK:

David, what did you study?
